We can’t ‘slow down’ in race to end deadly Ebola outbreak in DR Congo, says top UN response coordinator

26 September 2019

There are positive signs that the Government-led effort to end the deadly Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has turned the corner, but there’s no room for complacency.

That’s according to the UN’s Emergency Ebola Response Coordinator, David Gressly, who was at UN Headquarters on Wednesday to take part in a ministerial-level meeting to assess the more than year-long effort to end the second-worst outbreak ever.

He spoke to UN News’s Matt Wells.
